Invalid update Altering that range would lock your current IP address out!

 

Cause


The IP range you are trying to deny might come under your current Public IP range and that range would lock your current IP address out!

e.g. If your current IP is 10.10.10.10, you should have an allow rule for 10.10.10.10 . Then you can create a deny rule for 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255.

Resolution


Allow a range that contains your current Public IP first.

To know what is your IP address, use this URL: https://www.whatismyip.com/

Then deny the range which you wish to be block. After allowing one public IP range, you could block from 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255.

e.g. If your current public IP is 10.10.10.10, you should have an allow rule for 10.10.10.10 . Then you can create a deny rule for 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255.
